Bill Bohnyak – Sheriff, Orange County
What, in your mind, is the ideal structure for a functional legal Tax and Regulate system? How would you work with other branches of government to create this kind of system?
How would you assess Vermont’s current medical marijuana program? How will you ensure that registered medical patients and caregivers have access to an abundance of high-quality cannabis products priced at or below market rates?
Currently the system appears to be working. Against any changes.
How will you ensure that people who’ve been disproportionately affected by prohibition (such as convicts and People Of Color) will have an equal opportunity to participate in Vermont’s legal cannabis industry? In particular, how will you work for statewide expungement of convictions for possession?
We must continue to be fair to all people.
I am against expungements.
How will you make sure that all Vermonters have equal access to joining the legal cannabis industry as small and startup businesses?
They do now….
Do you think state can sustain both a medical and a recreational program – or would you combine cannabis regulations into one system?
If tax-and-regulate is passed, how would you prefer to allocate cannabis revenues? To the general fund or to specific causes? If specific, please share any proposals.
Drug free programs for our children.
Would you allow Vermont towns to enact temporary moratoriums or outright bans on legal cannabis businesses?
